الجواب حامداومصليا

As Muslim we should be cautious in how we interact and socialise with people and to stay away from Haram and Fitna. Intermingling with the opposite sex who is not your Mahram relative is Haram, you must make Tawbah and Istighfar.

With regards to your question, Nikah would not take place due to not having any witnesses.

ولا ينعقد نكاح المسلمين إلا بحضور شاهدين حرين عاقلين بالغين مسلمين رجلين أو رجل وامرأتين عدولا كانوا أو غير عدول أو محدودين في القذف
( هداية ج2, ص306)

And Allah knows best
